Moin Mir is a writer of both non-fiction and fiction. Working with history and understanding it through the lens of philosophy, Mir’s writings have received international acclaim. Contextualising the past for contemporary social and human relevance, his work has many splendored contours spanning across translations, popular historical narratives, poetry and novels. He is represented by Charlie Campbell of Greyhound Literary Agents. 

His passion for literature, history and philosophy makes him an obsessive traveller which takes him across spectacular geographical landscapes spanning continents, lost libraries and the marvels of historical monuments both known and the ones that are faintly shimmering in the mist of time. One of the stops in his travels is the international literature festival circuit where he can be seen speaking on travel writing and history.

Besides literature festivals, he has spoken at Christies London, Kings College, SOAS and at The Royal Asiatic Society, London. His latest book, ‘The Lost Fragrance of Infinity’ is a novel that has been hailed as “The Gospel of it’s times with a text so astounding that if a million copies were taught by rote the world would see a better direction and the melting of hearts” (India Today, October 2021). The book was also in the Top 5 reads of Times of India for 2021. Read more about ‘The Lost Fragrance of Infinity’ under Books. 

He has two daughters Aara Mir and Zohaa Mir. He lives in London with his wife Leonie Mir who is an art curator.
